Dream, For Hope

Just a short one, something I shared on my FB timeline earlier.

"Nothing wrong about having a dream.
Especially if we act to achieve that dream.
Don't ever be afraid to start.
Don't ever be afraid to fail.
Success or failure, it's part of life experience.
Don't let anyone tell us otherwise.
And don't stop others from dreaming too.
Life is short."

It's  not poetic but it comes from my heart.

When we dream, don't let others who judge us, laugh at us or demean us stop us from trying to achieve what we dream for. Especially not when they don't walk in your shoes.

Be strong. Be true to yourself.

My father-in-law passed away on Friday after weeks spent at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.

While life has to continue on, there will be some adjustments in our life in the near future.

Lego Time

Son has been saving up his pocket money and had planned to buy some more Lego during the Box of Bricks promotion at Mid Valley Megamall, where they had this  "LEGO City Swamp Police: Catch the Crooks" exhibition/promotion on.
He didn't get anything there at Mid Valley but he had fun taking photos. ^^

On Friday last week, we visited Bangsar Village and there, a similar Lego exhibits was held too.
He bought the Demolition Starter Set there and completed "a mission" where he was given a Lego Police Car to assemble and later was given a limited edition poster and certificate of completion. ^^

Then, we head to the Lego store located at Bangsar Village II and Son bought two sets of Ninjago and received more freebies! 

All in all I guess it was well worth the pocket money he had saved up to buy his Lego. 

Nothing too expensive.

He is building his collection slowly, with his own money.

His Mommy and Daddy always say, they'll provide for basic necessities such as food, clothes, education but toys; that one he has to earn them to enjoy them. Just like the new smartphone he got a few months ago.

The Weekend Fun Outing - Hikes And Malls Run

Son decided to spend Saturday at his granddad's house so hubby and I had the luxury of spending a few hours on Saturday without worrying about him too much.
We decided to do a few loops at Forest Reserve Ayer Hitam in Puchong, which is nearby Taman Wawasan. Again. Hahaha

Four and a half hours of doing the 3K hilly loops there and it's time to head home.
But not before enjoying some nice coconut drink from a makeshift stall at the base of the hill.

And then, off we went to pick up Raimie and head to another place to visit someone.

It was only after dinner that we finally got back home. A FULL DAY! 

Sunday started early.

Remember my previous post about running in the Mid Valley City Charity Run?

The 5K run started earlier than normal 5K runs; at 6.30am and we were already up at 5.00!
A novelty at this 5K run, we not only were able to run around the Mid Valley/Gardens Mall, we got to run inside them!

The first loop of the route saw us runners running around the Mid Valley/Gardens Mall road and the second loop had us going into the underground parking area!
Mid way through the run, we collected a glow stick lanyard and entered the parking area which was purposely darkened and decorated with glow-in-the-dark decorations. Cool!

But I wish they put on music on or something in the car park area because it kinda felt like we were running through a haunted house attraction. LOL

We came out through an incline of the entrance to the car park located just beside the Gardens Residences and proceeded to run into the Gardens Mall. We later exited from the entrance at the Coach/Dome and ran towards Mid Valley Mall and entered Mid Valley Mall through the entrance at Plan B. We ran from the South Court to the North Court, exited and ran the last few metres at the road in front of the Boulevard Offices towards the Finish Line.

I expected to finish slow as I had to wait for the congestion to clear up at the Starting Line and that actually took about 3 minutes.

There were a few times along a certain stretch that I had to stop and walk because it was too crowded and impossible to run. 

But hey! Despite an easy paced run, I finished in 28minutes (inclusive of that 3minutes waiting for the crowd to thin out). Ahaha
What to do after finishing my run?

Collect goodies!

There were no breakfast pack served this year, unlike last year despite an increase of RM20 in registration fees. But then again, the 2nd Skin event tee is nicer than the New Balance tee that we got last year.

As we had other plans for the morning, we only queued at some of the booths; Ori-Udon (hot dog on skewers), Garret popcorn (popcorn), Magnum (magnum ice cream!) and Moo Cow (yogurt drink) and decided to give Juiceee booth a miss as the line was really loooong. 

There were Milo and Nestle Fitnesse cereal too, so it was a nice "makan" after a short run. Hihihi

Later, hubby and I head off to Ayer Hitam again to tackle the hill again.
Bumped into a couple of friends and we started the hike together. But as they were faster, they went ahead and we continued at our own pace.

A 5K road run earlier and a 12K hike, it was nice to enjoy the free Moo Cow yogurt drink that we received at Mid Valley Charity run. Yum yum.

It rained when we were at the trail so the coconut stall was closed otherwise I'd stop and drink another coconut drink there.

Just a short hike because we needed to rush back before noon for a get-together.
Only one workout during the weekdays so it was nice to get a few workouts during the weekend. ^^

Looking forward for a new week!

Mid Valley Charity Run 2015

I'm going to run in the 5K Mid Valley Charity Run this Sunday, and am looking forward to do it with Son.

Just happy, happy, fun outing and later redeem the free goodies at the sponsor booths after the run.

Not only Nestle Fitnesse cereal and Milo, got Garrett popcorn, Magnum ice cream, Juiceee drinks, Moo Cow yoghurt and even some skewers of something from Ori-Udon!

Syiok wor. Hahaha

Later, I'm hoping to put in a bit more mileage and run at a trail. I hope I'll have the time because later need to rush for a lunch get-together.

Gonna be a fun Sunday! :-)
